Shopping for groceries can be a hassle for the average American. One thing that rarely crosses our minds is the risk of suffering injury while collecting our goods. A woman in Texas has found herself in the unfortunate situation of physical recovery after allegedly suffering an injury at a large retail chain.

The Walmart Corporation is facing a lawsuit after the woman claimed she was injured after having slipped and fallen at a Galveston location on March 13th. She alleges her fall occurred when she slipped on a puddle of water as she approached a cash register. The plaintiff is claiming the store’s negligence in maintaining a safe environment was the cause. She is seeking between $200,000 and $1 million in compensation.

Poor Maintenance

Any hazards, such as puddles of water, which could result in injury, should not be neglected. When property owners do not address these hazards in a timely manner, the business could be held liable if a customer alleges that injury has resulted due to said hazards.
